Father's Day Tri Tip - First Auber use

edited June 2013 in EggHead Forum

The kids got me an Auber PID controller for fathers day so I obviously had to use it.  While it was a short cook, the Auber got to temp quickly and held steady for the hour or so I needed. 

Before I knew what I was getting I decided for fathers day I wanted to try tri tip on my egg.  I went with the Santa Maria Recipe thats been posted around here a time or two.  Indirect until about 115, pulled and rested while getting the egg up to temp (took too long a break as I wrapped my thermo for the first time, but avoided the flashback) then seared about a minute on each side.  At this point I remembered "it didn;t happen without pics" so I had SWMBO snap a few of the final temp check, some sliced, and finally plated with some blue cheese bacon mashed potatoes.

    Tri tip looks great! I have an auber and did an 8 hour cook on Saturday and it held temp +/- 1 degree the entire cook.  You'll love it

    Looks perfect!  Those mashed taters look great too!  

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.
